#2476 - What is a primary group for?

Closed General Question created by madmat Verified Purchase 3 years ago

Hi all,

I'm curious about primary groups. What is the use for them and why is it necessary that a user has one?
Haven't found anything in the documentation about it. But I may haven't searched well enought.

King regards

    Good question. It is used to determine which custom layout to use if a user is in multiple security groups with custom views.

    Thank you for the verification.
    You might wanna put this into the manual (if it isn't already) , it took us quite a while to figure that out ourselves.
    Especially because the German translation in all of the German language packs is horribly wrong on this one.
    "Startseiten Gruppe" doesn't mean anything even closely to "Primary Group".
    :)

      That's not helpful! Sorry. If you have any changes to the German language pack feel free to send them over to me. I'll include them going forward.

    This should be something like "Gruppenlayout" if it is really only about the Layouts to make it a little more self explanatory.
    Or "Primäre Gruppe" for a direct translation.
